Graphic Communication Design

This course equips you to become a versatile graphic communication design practitioner in a wide range of media and contexts, from paper to screen, from digital environments to public spaces. Your degree will prepare and position you to navigate an ever-changing profession and will position you broadly for a career in design and design strategy. You will develop the core languages of typography, digital, design writing and reading and will have the opportunity to work in illustration, photography, printmaking, letterpress, coding and motion graphics. You will become a critical maker and design thinker equipped for the distinctive complex challenges of the 21st century. The course is taught at Central Saint Martins, King’s Cross. **About Central Saint Martins** Central Saint Martins is a world-leading centre for arts and design education.
